Everybody is still too chicken. Especially after there has been Tesla frontal impacts with their system.I haven't found an answer to this and would like to ask the forum. Driver's Confidence Package 2 gives "automatic forward, low speed automatic braking" with forward collision alert. I believe I read that was 31 MPH or less.
ACC (Adaptive Cruise Control) gives "Full Speed Front Automatic Braking"
Here is the question for a car equipped with ACC BUT not having cruise control on. If I am driving 45 MPH or 55 MPH and the car senses I might hit the object in front of me, will the car try to stop itself? I can't seem to find any answer. Does anyone know?
There is a post on here "Thanks Chevrolet" in 2nd gen, about what happened to me with no ACC active, but the FCA/IBA/AEB system (frontal warning and braking). It spotted a very minor variation in a stopped car than just started to move into my path, quicker than the human eye can react with a semi-pro race driver behind the wheel.
Even IF the system works 99% percent of the time, I still see it as a copilot, not a pilot. I am not going to rely on it blindly.
BTW - Have you SEEN the FCA come on? GEEZ!!! It has an HUD that broadcasts 6 superbright LED's across the windshield while beeping at you. It WILL get the attention of anybody with a pulse.
